How Smart Vacuum and Mop Clean Your House When You're Not Home

Managing your home while you are away can be a challenging task. It's always a relief when a friend is willing to stop by and assist with tasks such as watering plants, collecting mail, and taking out the garbage bins. Furthermore, having someone stay overnight to keep your pets company is a thoughtful gesture. However, it can be uncomfortable to ask a friend to perform housekeeping duties. Ideally, you want them to feel like a welcomed guest rather than a house cleaner.

The dilemma remains: how can you maintain a clean house when you're not around? Even if a friend visits sporadically, dust will inevitably accumulate throughout your home. Dirt also has a knack for finding its way indoors, particularly if you have pets.  You must find a way to ensure that your house remains clean without imposing undue burdens on your visiting friends. That’s how smart vacuum and mop come to save you!

How Smart Vacuum and Mop Devices Work

Smart vacuum and mop devices utilize sensors and AI algorithms to navigate spaces, detect dirt, and optimize cleaning paths. They map the environment using cameras, lasers, or infrared sensors, and automatically switch between vacuuming and mopping based on floor types. These devices can be scheduled, controlled remotely, and return to charging stations autonomously.

Sensors and Mapping

Typical smart vacuum and mop models map using a combination of sensors and algorithms. These vacuums typically follow a random or semi-random path, ensuring that they eventually cover the entire floor space. Some robot vacuums use a basic SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) algorithm to create a rough map of the area while they clean. However, their navigation may be less efficient compared to advanced mapping systems like TrueMapping.

In fact, TrueMapping is the superhero of outstanding cleaning coverage that ECOVACS DEEBOT presents! With its trusty sidekicks, dToF sensors and LiDAR technology, DEEBOT scans its surroundings like a pro, devising the speediest and smartest cleaning routes. No dust or dirt particle can escape its watchful eye - it's the caped crusader your floors deserve!

Interested in trying this advanced navigation feature? You can purchase our models from ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 family. They’re equipped with the latest TrueMapping 2.0 that will surprise you in efficient navigation.

Navigation and Obstacle Detection

Generally, smart vacuum and mop robots avoid obstacles using an array of sensors. Infrared sensors help detect obstacles in their path, while bump sensors allow them to gently nudge objects and change direction. Cliff sensors prevent the robots from falling down stairs. These sensors work together, enabling the vacuum to navigate around obstacles and clean the floor effectively. However, normal vacuum robots may not recognize or avoid obstacles as efficiently as advanced systems like AIVI 3D Technology.

As one of the innovations brought by ECOVACS, AIVI 3D is the ultimate magician of mess evasion! Is your floor a landmine of shoes and toys? Fret not! With a creative design of AI and 3D structured light sensors, AIVI spots obstacles, recognizes them, and gracefully sidesteps the chaos. Sit back, relax, and forget the pre-clean – our hybrid DEEBOT has got your back!

Suction and Cleaning Mechanisms

The suction power, measured in Pascals (Pa), determines the device's ability to lift dirt, debris, and dust from various surfaces. A higher suction power indicates a more efficient cleaning performance, especially when dealing with stubborn dirt and pet hair.

The DEEBOT X1 OMNI showcases an impressive suction power of 5000Pa, enabling it to tackle various cleaning challenges with ease. It creatively adopts a floating main brush with dual-side brushes, excelling in both surfaces and corners. This powerful suction, combined with carefully designed brushes, allows the device to provide a superior cleaning performance. As a highly-praised smart vacuum and mop device, DEEBOT X1 OMNI also features adjustable suction power, allowing users to customize the cleaning experience to suit their specific needs.

Self-Emptying Capabilities of Robot Vacuum and Mop Combo Products

If you want me to nominate the basic capabilities to define if a robot vacuum and mop combo is smart enough, I prefer to say it’s the self-empty feature. This design adds a new level of convenience and efficiency to the cleaning process.

Self-emptying robot vacuums, like those in the ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 family, are designed to automatically empty their dustbins into a larger storage unit after vacuuming. The ECOVACS OMNI Station is a remarkable innovation, which not only self-empties the dustbin but also enhances the overall cleaning experience.

When the robot vacuum finishes its cleaning cycle, it returns to the OMNI Station docking unit, where the suction mechanism is activated. This process extracts the accumulated dirt, debris, and dust from the robot's dustbin and transfers it to the larger bag inside the station. The self-emptying feature can accommodate multiple cleaning cycles before the user needs to replace the bag, reducing the frequency of manual maintenance.

Advantages of Smart Vacuum and Mop Devices

Smart vacuum and mop devices offer numerous advantages. No one should doubt why it has successfully become a must-have for modern families. These devices keep your living space tidy, even when you're not around. Their advantages include but not limited to:

Convenience and efficiency: These devices can be scheduled to clean at specific times, allowing you to maintain a clean home without constant manual intervention. Remote control through smartphone apps also enables you to start or stop cleaning sessions, even when you're away from home.

Reduced time and effort: With their automated cleaning capabilities, smart vacuum and mop devices save you time and effort, allowing you to focus on other tasks or simply enjoy more leisure time.

Improved cleaning performance: By using advanced navigation systems and optimized cleaning paths, these devices ensure thorough coverage and better cleaning results. Their powerful suction, combined with efficient brush systems, effectively removes dirt, debris, and dust from various surfaces.

Advanced features and capabilities: Smart vacuum and mop devices offer a range of advanced features, such as self-emptying dustbins, obstacle avoidance, and customized cleaning modes, making them adaptable to your specific cleaning needs. Some models also integrate with smart home systems for seamless control and monitoring.

Next time, when you’re out of home, be confident to leave the cleaning task to your DEEBOT. They will fulfil your order efficiently without any complaints. Explore DEEBOT line of robot vacuum cleaners and elevate your cleaning experience today!
